Sultanpur LodhiI (3P13N, 7512E), old town in Kapurthala district of the Punjab, where Guru Nanak put up for several years before setting out on his travels to deliver his message. In this town lived his sister, Bibi Nanaki, and her husband, Jai Ram, an official in the service of Nawab Daulat Khan Lodhi, a feudatory chief, who became governor of the Province of Lahore during the first quarter of the sixteenth century. At the instance of Jai Ram, Guru Nanak took up employment in the Nawab`s provision stores.
During that time there grew up a sangai, holy fellowship of disciples, which so prospered that Bhai Gurdas in his Varan (XI.21), called Sultanpur the "treasure of God`s adoration." Sultanpur Lodhi has several gurdwaras commemorating events connected with the life of Guru Nanak.
Gurudwara Sri Antaryamta Sahib, a flat roofed rectangular room marks the site of a mosque to which Nawab Daulat Khan had invited Guru Nanak to participate in namaz or Muslim prayer.
Gurdwara Sri Antaryamta Sahib, a flat roofed rectangular room marks the site of a mosque to which Nawab Daulat Khan had invited Guru Nanak to participate in namaz or muslim prayer. Divining how the Nawab and the Qazi were only outwardly going through the ritual with their minds engrossed in worldly thoughts, Guru Nanak stood aside.
Divining how the Nawab and the Kadi were only outwardly going through the ritual with their minds engrossed in mundane thoughts, Guru Nanak stood aside. When the Nawab asked him why he did not join the prayer, he told them exactly what he and the Kadi had been thinking of as they prayed. Both, as say the Janam Sakhis, fell at the Guru`s feet. Nothing remains of the mosque now except the entrance gate to the compound. Gurudwara Guru ka Bagh, a flat roofed hall in the interior of the town marks the premises where Guru Nanak resided with his wife and children during his stay at Sultanpur.
The Guru Granth Sahib is seated in the hall on a rectangular platform. A narrow well, now covered, is a relic of the days of yore.
Gurudwara Sri Antaryamta Sahib is situated in the Sultanpur lodhi city of Kapurthala district. The muslims asked satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji that whether he was hindus guru or muslims ? Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji maharaj replied that he is common to them. Then the muslims said that in case you are common then come with us to offer namaaz. SatGuru ji went along. Everyone stood in the mosque in order to offer namaaz & started offering prayers but Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji kept standing straight. After offering namaaz, they asked with anger as to why didn't he offer prayers to which Guru ji said that even you didn't offer prayers. Nawab said that they did offer prayers. Guru ji said that your heart was away to get horses from kandhar. You were physically present here & so was i, but not mentally. On hearing this khan said that you should have offered prayers along with the priest. SatGuru ji replied that even he was physically present here but his mind was taking care of the new born female calf at home which might not fall into the well. Then everybody bowed to Guru ji's feet in adoration & said that he is a saint with divine powers.
